Chicken Satay

Chicken Satay

This would traditionally be served as an appetizer at Oriental restaurants, but Jeremy and I enjoyed it as our main course.  It was a super delicious way to use our new grill (thanks Schultz's if you're reading this!).

-1 lb chicken, cut into strips
-1/2 cup coconut milk
-1/2 cup fat-free plain yogurt
-1 clove garlic
-1 inch piece ginger
-3 Tbsp soy sauce
-1 Tbsp curry powder
-1 Tbsp brown sugar
-1 tsp chili paste

 Whisk together all ingredients except chicken.  Allow chicken to marinate for 2-8 hours.

Peanut Dipping Sauce
-1 cup peanut butter
-1/2 cup hot water
-2 tsp chili paste
-1/4 cup soy sauce
-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
-1 clove garlic
-1 inch piece ginger
-2 Tbsp brown sugar
-juice of 2 limes

Combine all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth.

To serve: broil or grill chicken until cooked through.  Garnish with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro if desired, and serve with peanut sauce for dipping.

oooh, that looks good. I'll have to try it. I'm going to love getting recipes from your blog when I'm overseas. Everything is going to take so much more time to do over there so I won't be able to just test 4 recipes a day like I do sometimes. So, you'll kind of be a recipe tester for me :)
